Today on Gawker, where you should go if you want to find yourself on Craigslist's Missed Connections. The list reads like a compendium of how New Yorkers live. A whopping 35% of unredeemed moments occurred (duh) on the subway. And NYU bred more missed connections than Columbia. Is this because: NYU students are hotter? more wimpy than their up-town rivals at asking someone out? or more easily distracted from their books? You be the judge. Also: you've got an equal chance of a missed connection involving a cop, Home Depot, a barber, or a hypnosis show. There must be a link there somewhere.
